How can I color Waffle paper dark colors, like red and black, without creating hole on the paper. I do not have an edible printer or airbrush machine. I did Google and found a tutorial, but I still cannot get the paper a dark red.

 

Thanks!

AOmg! I feel like an idiot. It's Wafer paper! Not waffle paper.

I bought a Craftsy class on making flowers with this edible paper, but she uses an edible printer to get the color on the paper.

I would try dry petal dust on the already colored paper.

 

the paper is already a bit translucent so a rich red or black might be tough.

 

I took the same class (and LOVED it), I print the colors on my edible printer and it's dark enough for me.  

 

(also, I'm curious, did you ask Stevi using the "craftsy platform"? lol)

I did ask, but no reply yet. :-)

ABrush it in, but use a color like crystal colors, not the petal dusts. Powdered food colors...they'll be more concentrated.

I use an airbrush to color wafer paper, but I wouldn't brush the color on with a paintbrush, that would melt it.

Thank you, I'll give powdered colors a try. I guess I really should invest in an airbrush machine.

OHh I get it now. It's because the candy colors are not water based, but rather oil based. Makes sense, Thanks for the link!
